's listen. >> an update on the city's recovery from sandy as of this moment. i went to some of the areas in south brooklyn hit hardest by the storm. i did talk to some homeowners, went inside some of their houses and some had been severely damaged by sandy. the homeowners are still without power. some of them are still pumping water out of their basements, and they're confronting what they have lost and what to do next. the bottom line is the most important thing is to deal with those we have fatalities, help those families through the unimaginably tragic occurrence in their lives, something that they will not recover from, and then understand that the people who lost their houses or don't know where they will get food or water have some confidence that we are going to be there for them, that we are doing what we can as fast as we can consistent with making sure that we have no further loss of life, so for example in turning on power, if there's a chance turning on power is going to start a fire, we will err on the side of caution. if there is an issue the safety of one of our first resp
